Which TV series should have gone on?

Posted on 07/19/2014 8:28:11 PM PDT by MNDude

Most TV series "jump the shark" or get bad long before they end. But there's always a few that you wish that went on at least another season. Which TV series or program(s) do you wish hadn't ended when it did but continued on at least another year?

Ditto that. I was trying to remember the name of that show. I kept thinking “Police Story” but that was another good one with Dennis Farina. I loved “Police Squad”. “IN COLOR”! LOL!

There was this show on when I was a kid. It was about fish and had this treasure chest with a skeleton. I watched it all the time. Then, all the fish died. Mom told me it was an aquarium. I wondered why there weren’t any commercials.

As a LONG-time trekkie, my vote is for MORE and MORE and MORE and MORE and MORE and MORE and MORE and MORE ”StarTrek” shows and movies. I can't get enough of them.

Babylon 5 and Earth Final Conflict.

Star Trek on the other hand could have done without its reincarnation as Deep Sleep 9 or Voyager.

They milked a dry cow with those two.
